From Rocky Bonanno at NHL.com:
“I don’t know if it’s ever good facing Detroit,” coach Randy Carlyle said after his eighth-seeded Ducks finished an upset of top-seeded San Jose on Monday night. “But we’re not focusing on Detroit right now. We’ll focus on that (Tuesday).”
No doubt, Carlyle’s preparation will include watching tape of all four regular-season meetings between Anaheim and Detroit, and here’s what he’ll find: the Red Wings took three of four, outscored and outshot the Ducks 15-11 and 152-104, respectively, and earned seven of eight possible points in the standings. Each squad excelled on the power play, with Detroit converting on five of 20 chances (25 percent) and Anaheim going 5-for-18 (27.8).
